I think the operative expression when it comes to the advice you receive is “consider the source” and also consider the motives of those passing out the advice. The FENG is awash in “free” advice. Still, I hope that you will take very seriously the words of wisdom that are contained in our evening newsletter and use that which you believe to be valid to great advantage as you [ Read more… ]

Speaker: Jim Ashworth, Partner with Joseph Michaels International

Presentation:
In placing over 1,100 business professionals over the last 28 years, Jim has conducted and documented over 5,000 interview follow ups.

Very simply, he has learned that there are four areas of an interview that will determine which of typically 3 to 5 candidates will get hired.

In this first session, Jim will be covering the first two areas…’Reasons for leaving previous positions and ‘Tell me about yourself/why don’t you go over your resume’. He will explain why traditional answers don’t work and how to more effectively handle these questions.

Jim plans to conduct multiple role plays on both these areas so our guests can experience the differences and more positive outcomes.

Agenda

This month we have a great presentation planned. The FENG member, Sandy Selman will present “Blockchain 101 – What you need to know”

Ask anyone about blockchain and they’ll likely tell you they’ve heard of it but know little about it. In this brief session, Sandy will attempt to dispel the common myths about blockchain and highlight how this “old” technology is now being deployed to enhance data security and transparency in the real world. Believe what you will about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, but as a data architecture, blockchain is a different subject altogether and is poised to transform many sectors of our economy, especially financial services, over the coming decade.

About Sandy Selman:

Sandy Selman co-founded CPROP in early 2017 to develop blockchain-enabled data solutions across the real estate value chain. CPROP has become an industry thought leader on practical implementations of blockchain for mainstream businesses in brokerage, insurance, title, mortgage finance and investment management. Sandy previously co-founded Sanus Connect Inc., an IoT and software company, where he and his team designed a powerful new business solution for JLL to provide competitive differentiation for its property management and facilities management businesses. Earlier in his career, he managed an early-stage venture fund that deployed over $100 million to disruptive clean technology businesses in N. America and Europe. Sandy spent the early part of his career as a project finance banker and advisor specializing in infrastructure finance and M&A, especially in emerging markets, and as an engineer in the manufacturing and utility sectors.


As always, be sure to bring about 15 copies of your resume; a supply of business cards may come in handy for networking as well. Please polish your 2 minute presentation!

Alumni members are encouraged to attend this meeting and participate in the discussion - it is a great way to give back to the group, and to maintain and build your network.

We plan on starting the meeting promptly at 6:30 PM, but attendees may begin to arrive anywhere from 6:00 PM for informal networking.
